UP to come up with a tiger conservation body for Amangarh Tiger Reserve
In a bid to facilitate biodiversity conservation and to promote eco-tourism, the UP administration will soon constitute a dedicated body for tiger conservation in the Amangarh Tiger Reserve (ATR) of the Bijnor district.
Reportedly, the plan for the formulation of ATR's conservation body i.e. Amangarh Tiger Reserve Foundation will require a multidimensional approach, involving multiple stakeholders other than the support from the state government.
